2022 Garden Tours

April 22 & 23, 2022 12pm - 5pm

Nothing gets the design ideas flowing like a walk through an impressive garden. Some are personal masterpieces and others are continuous life-long love affairs.

They all manifest the passion of their gardeners and will help ignite your passion for designing your own garden. Viewing what another garden designer has accomplished opens your eyes to what is attainable.

Scroll down for a preview of the private gardens to be featured during the tour. Check back as more gardens may be added.

This program offers tour participants the opportunity to visit exceptional private gardens, which are generally not open to the public. Tours are throughout Columbia County and Augusta, including historic Summerville.
